While many of the important plot points remain lodged firmly in an average viewer’s mind, the smaller details can slip right under the radar. Even something as straightforward as heights and ages of recurring characters can become cloudy in a series as long as this one. Every once in a while, it does fans good to treat themselves to a bit of a refresher.

Franky and his followers were initially opponents of the Straw Hats. However, circumstances later forced them to become allies.

He constructed the Thousand Sunny, the second ship of the Straw Hat Pirates, and joined the crew to chase his dream.

Having originally served as a crewmember of the Rumbar Pirates, Brook had died and was resurrected. However, due the soul struggling to reach his abandoned body, time reduced his corpse to a mere skeleton, leaving only his iconic afro intact. Brook drifted alone for 50 years, before eventually meeting Luffy and joining the crew.
